一本针对乐于冒险的旅行者在天际省/天际之地的简短旅行指南

几乎总是这样,来自赛瑞迪尔的高贵游客们所看到的天际省/天际之地只不过是那里的马车的景象。无疑,这个粗劣、未开化的省份远说不上环境舒适,但它同时是一个充满凶猛、野性之美的地方,如同那里宏伟的景色和鼓舞人心的自然奇观一样在等待着那些愿意精心发掘并真正欣赏它们的人。如果你自己愿意去天际省/天际之地看看,我推荐你同我当时一样,先找到命运之石(Stones of Fate),来开始你的冒险。 毫无疑问你被这名字吓了一跳,就像我从前一样。外省人和村民们有着各种各样关于这些古迹的黑暗传说。而胆敢触摸它们的人,则被授予了那些关于死灵法术仪式和堕落幽灵的有着可怕威力的故事。 这些故事是,如同贵族Igrof有一次告诉我的,“许多猛犸象(猛犸)的粪便”。虽有些笨拙,但你能明白。 当然了,确保你的护卫始终跟着你—-因为到处是强盗和野兽,决不能掉以轻心。不过这些石头本身并没什么可怕之处,恰恰相反,其邻近城市和道路,使他们成为新手探险的理想目的地,此外天际省/天际之地还有很多值得夸耀的壮观景点,让你为旅行所付出的努力尤为值得。 为了刺激你旅行的欲望,以下是4个这样的地点: 大部分旅行者通过赫尔根,“北方的大门”进入天际省/天际之地.如果你发现自己在这个回水小屋(backwater hovel),可以考虑骑一个下午的马到北边,在湖Ilinalta的东端,沿着道路由悬崖蜿蜒而下。离开道路不远,在一片小断崖上,坐落着三个守护者之石(Guardian Stones),这些是在整个天际省/天际之地中最为集中的立石。日落时分,湖的景象则是简单的升华。 从Cheydinhal来的游客将通过Riften,一座自从泰伯·赛普丁的纪念日以来充斥着阴谋与盗窃的城市,如果你在裂谷寻求冒险,离开城市的南大门,并将目光投向南方升起的绝壁。其上坐着暗影之石(Shadow Stone),作为盗贼之城的象征最适合不过了。 Whiterun是天际省/天际之地的心脏,它的巍峨宫殿,甚至可以媲美赛瑞迪尔的伟大城堡。但是如果你厌倦了Jarl的款待,那么沿着随White River Gorge上升的道路走,另一次冒险将在城东等待着你几个小时后的到来。道路北侧升起的孤立的小山顶上,可以找到仪式之石(The Ritual Stone),就在古老的遗迹里。从这个独特位置望去,Whiterun、冻土带、峡谷都将有着不可思议的景象,花点时间享受吧。 经验更丰富的探险家们也许希望去访问麦卡斯城,这座远到西部的石古城。然而最近不守誓言的叛乱(Forsworn Rebellion)使得在河源地(one of the nine holds)旅行也变得危险,但对于那些决心寻求冒险而不惜代价的人来说,还能发现城市东边的另外一块石头,栖息在Kol斯盖格尔矿(寇斯凯格矿井)上方的山上。尽管攀登起来十分困难,但是如果达到顶峰那将是任何探险家都能引以为荣的里程碑。 在天际省/天际之地还可以找到其他的命运之石(Stones of Fate)—-我自己还看到过一些,位于最遥远的山巅,或座落于北部沼泽的迷雾之中。不过探险的真正乐趣还在于发现,所以我将余下的留给你自己,愿老八 (Eight)指引你的道路。

An Explorer's Guide to Skyrim
by Marcius Carvain, Viscount Bruma
A brief travel guide for adventuresome tourists in Skyrim


Far too often, noble visitors from Cyrodiil see little more ofSkyrim than the view from their carriage. To be sure, this coarse, uncivilized province is far from hospitable, but it is also a place of fierce, wild beauty, with grand vistas and inspiring natural wonders awaiting those with the will to seek them out and the refinement to truly appreciate them. If you are of a mind to see Skyrim for yourself, I recommend beginning your adventure as I did, by seeking out Stones of Fate.
No doubt you are taken aback by the name, as I once was. The provincials and village folk have all manner of dark tales about these ancient monuments. Stories of necromantic rituals and fell spirits, of great and terrible powers conferred on any who dare to touch them.
The stories are, as Jarl Igrof once told me, "A load of mammoth dung." A bit uncouth, but you get the point.
To be sure, keep your guards with you at all times - brigands and wild animals are never to be taken lightly. But the stones themselves are nothing to fear. Quite the contrary, their proximity to cities and roads makes them ideal destinations for the novice explorer, and many boast spectacular views that make the journey well worth the effort.
To whet your appetite, here are four such locations:
Most travelers enter Skyrim by way of Helgen, "Gateway to the North." If you find yourself in this backwater hovel, consider taking an afternoon's ride to the north, keeping to the road as it winds down the cliffs at the eastern end of Lake Ilinalta. Just off the path, on a small bluff, lie the three Guardian Stones, the greatest concentration of standing stones in all Skyrim. The view of the lake here at sunset is simply sublime.
Visitors from Cheydinhal will pass through Riften, city of intrigue and larceny since Tiber Septim's day. If you seek adventure in the Rift, leave the city by the southern gate and cast your gaze upon the bluff that rises to the south. Atop it sits the Shadow Stone, a fitting symbol for the city of thieves.
Whiterun is the heart of Skyrim, its towering palace rivaling even the great castles of Cyrodiil. But should you tire of the Jarl's hospitality, another adventure awaits a few hours to the east of the city, along the road that rises above White River Gorge. The Ritual Stone can be found atop the lone hill that rises on the north side of the road, set into an ancient monument. Take time to soak in the incredible view of Whiterun, the tundra, and the gorge from this unique spot.
More seasoned explorers may wish to visit Markarth, the ancient city of stone far to the west. The recent Forsworn Rebellion has made travel in the Reach perilous, but for those determined to seek adventure no matter the cost, another stone can be found to the east of the city, perched on the mountain above Kolskeggr Mine. Though the climb is difficult, reaching the summit is a milestone any explorer could be proud of.
There are other Stones of Fate to be found in Skyrim - I myself have seen several more, perched on the most remote mountain peaks, or wreathed in fog amid the northern marshes. But the true joy of exploration is in the discovery, and so I leave the rest to you. May the Eight guide your steps.
